JOB DESCRIPTION
This Summer you could have the opportunity to work for one of Levi Strauss & Co.’s iconic brands!  Our San Francisco-based Summer Internship opportunities, among the Levi’s® and Dockers® brands, give students real world work experience and exposure to one of the world’s leading fashion and apparel companies. Our 10-week Summer Internship Program is the perfect way to gain work experience within the core of the organization, while learning what a career at LS&Co. might have in store for you.

At LS&Co. we believe that clothes — and how they’re made — can make a difference. Since 1853, we’ve been obsessed with innovation to meet people’s needs. We invented the first blue jean and we reinvented khaki pants. We pioneered labor and environmental guidelines for our manufacturing partners and we work to build sustainability into everything we do. 

A company doesn’t last 160 years by standing still. It endures by reinventing itself, striving to delight its consumers, winning in the marketplace, and by remaining true to its values. We employ more than 17,000 people around the world – supporting great brands, including Levi’s®, Dockers® and Denizen®. Our employees are committed to innovation, creativity and collaboration. Put simply, if you’re looking for a new opportunity, this is a great place to grow your career.

In this role you will support the M&D Operations Team. In addition to day-to-day responsibilities, all interns will participate in an intern group project dedicated to a critical business initiative as well as be exposed to all areas of our business and our brands.  Leadership seminars and career exploration series connect our interns to our leaders and educate around different career paths. Interns performance will be assessed using our internal review process.

⏵ Support the Levi’s® Merchandising and Design team with the largest global milestone meeting, FLA (Final Line Assortment)
